    This is a how-to for converting a Scalextric Mclaren M7C into a Policar racer. I have chosen to convert the Yellow Surtees car: But these other liveries are all convertible: This makes a really nice, smooth and quick handling car. So this is how I did it and should form a clear guide...

    I've started a new project.... Maurizio designed the gearbox based on my Policar one! Cheers Andi

    This is a how-to for converting a Scalextric Lotus 49 into a Policar racer. Background The Scalextric Lotus 49 has been around for about a decade now and although I've designed conversions for most other F1 cars on the market (Scalextric, Fly/Slotwings and SRC) I overlooked the possibility of...
  4. Scratch building
    As the Policar GP nears I started to look for a nice car for my son to enter in the scrathbuild and compatible chassis race on the Saturday. Given that there are still so many March 761/771 models being released I thought i'd get him one of the No.10 Brazilian GP 1976 driven by Lella Lombardi...

    Was starting to think that perhaps this would be a quiet year. But by thunder, Policar has gone and got the P4 about right, and now my trousers are on fire. Pic from their Facebook page (I brightened it up a bit as it was rather shadowy)... And here's a decent pic of a passable P4: Given...

    So to make a nice presentation of the Policars during the race weekend at UKSF I thought it would be nice to make a 1970's starting grid scene together with pit lane and pit. It was my Birthday this weekend so I got to do whatever I wanted so my son and I set to work...... We had fun and...

    A few photos showing the use of one of my 3D printed chassis with a Policar gearbox inserted in a narrow 1960's body (a Lotus 21 as it happens). Cheers Andi

    So I recently bought this book: Although not exhaustive it is a great summary of the teasm over the years with some great photos.... This one in particular stimulated me to dig out a couple of the DNQ shells I have stashed away safely for just such an occasion! I have the JPS and the...
  12. Andi Rowland Designs
    Well it has taken a lot longer than I had imagined but finally I've put together a chassis for the beautifully made Scalextric Ferrari 312T2 body. This one needed a fair bit of imagination to make it work. I was held up for some time by the lack of compatibility of the gearbox top that Scaley...

    For all of you like me that don't have FB...It seems that Policar is moving into F1 as well with a generic car that has the Policar motor pod (Noice!). http://www.slotcar-today.com/en/notices/2018/02/policar-2018-news-7023.php There is also a link to a nice video.

    Hi All Since our SFI News feed is not working at the moment I thought that I would share this news with you read from the French blog Letratslot: https://www.letratslot.com/ostorero-la-ferrari-156-85-de-stefan-johansson-gp-canada-1985/ Here is a nice pic of the car: Image of the chassis...
  18. Scratch building
    Here is my first F1 build. It is not going to be a scratch build but just a painting and decaling job starting from the Policar whitekit. I started on Saturday, unpacking and selecting the different parts for making something close to the subject I have chosen. I used the Gold Leaf model as a...
